» Agile Software Development
It's interesting to me that the main people who talk about using hybrid approaches to Agile are traditionally trained project managers. They believe there is a special blend of waterfall and agile techniques that will yield better results than either approach alone. They want to take the best of both worlds. I think they are misguided.
Last month I wrote about a couple of blog posts on LinkedIn about the death of Agile. Though the author admitted he was speaking tongue in cheek (and clearly hyping the topic by using an image of a nuclear explosion), he raised some good points about why some people wish Agile were dead. In this post, I look at the areas where I agree with the author, as well as where I think he is wrong.
